    The "S" Word That Could Get You Pregnant

    The "S" Word That Could Get You Pregnant
    Trying to have a baby? Get a Brazilian. No, not that type of Brazilian—although it could certainly help spice up the process—but, instead, a Brazil nut. Brazil nuts are chock-full of selenium, a trace mineral that was recently revealed to play a vital role in women’s fertility. (It’s been long-established that selenium matters for male fertility, but this is the first time it’s been linked to the ladies.)

    For the study, which was published in Metallomics in October, researchers at the University of Adelaide used X-ray fluorescent imaging to study female cows and the way selenium was distributed throughout their ovaries. They discovered that levels of the GPX-1 protein found in selenium were much higher in healthy follicles bigger than 10 millimeters—pinpointing selenium as a key component of follicle development. To see if those results would translate to humans, the researchers then studied 30 women undergoing IVF/ICSI with a single embryo transfer, and found that levels of GPX-1 were significantly higher (and sometimes double) in those who got pregnant.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
